  1. Well, I guess I'm just a bad luck magnet this month! After David got home that Friday, he replaced the malfunctioning parts of the heating system with all new ones, and we had heat!! Oh was it nice to be warm again after being without heat for almost 5 days! He didn't get finished with the plumbing until almost 3am. So we went to bed, and woke up to a phone call from my son (who lives in our basement apartment) saying that his floor was soaked and he could hear water rushing behind the wall So David got up, ran downstairs, and found that there was a ton of water under the flooring, and he cou
  2. The snow can be very beautiful, and yes, even romantic. There's nothing like taking a walk in the snow at sunset...no cars on the road...it's so pretty. But as far as being restrictive? It's pretty horrible getting 30" of snow in one storm and having to shovel for 4-5 hours straight, with cars sliding all over the road, and your windshield wipers getting frozen to the windshield...that kind of takes the romance out of it, lol. I hope it cools down for you soon ♥️

    Hello!

    I will be here when I can, @Aussie Bear ♥️ I've been thinking of you a lot lately too Read my response to Cinwa and you'll see what's been going on. Things are looking up, finally!! I hope things have been going well for you too, my friend. Miss Zoey has certainly been keeping me busy!! And thank you, yes she is gorgeous. I think she's going to be good for me. I can't wait for springtime, so I can get out and walk her, and start exercising again!!

    Hello!

    I hear you...it's tough with everything going on to get here as often as we should. I know I need to be here more, and had the perfect plan worked out, until hubby went back to work, lol. Now I'm home alone 4 days a week with 15ish week old puppy, lol, so she takes up most of my time. The only reason I have time to post today, is that I finally have her day crate trained, and I have to make sure I crate her during the day for at least an hour. If I don't, hubby and I will never be able to leave the house alone together again!! But thank you, she is totally adorable, and smart as a whip. She's

    Hello!

    @cinwa David is finally back to work!! His first day back was Monday the 8th!! It's been a hellish 11 months, with the worrying and wondering about our financial future, but with any luck, Rona won't send us backward! We've been ok, since I've saved every dime that I possibly could since the beginning of this whole mess. Between the stimulus checks and the additional unemployment, we've been blessed to be able to save some. We have actually been able to help a couple of friends out that suddenly lost their jobs and had to wait weeks for the unemployment to kick in. So I've been praising
  7. Here in upstate New York, we've had one major snowstorm...I can't even remember how long ago, but I know it was before Christmas. Our son bought us a snowblower for Christmas, but it arrived literally one day after the storm, lol. I believe we got about 30" of snow from that storm. I was shoveling for about 4 1/2 hours, and Devin's boyfriend, my son, and David all came out to help at different intervals. We've had a few smaller "storms" like 3 or 4 inches here and there. But a couple of days ago we were supposed to get 5-9", and instead we got about 3" and then about an inch of ice on top of t

    @cinwa!!! I’ve missed you so much, my dear friend...and I’ve missed being here and interacting with you all!! I explained about my failed post to you in my PM...so sorry about that! You and your hubby are always in my thoughts ❤️ Love and hugs ❤️❤️❤️

    Hello!

    Hello darlin’!!! @TammyP First off, I LOVE your Teddy!! He’s beautiful! I’m so glad he has brought so much joy into your life! We have only had Zoey for 11 days now, but I’m already in love ❤️ She has some health issues though, so we are trying to get her better. Canine flu and Giardia...so lots of meds and upset tummy=vomiting and coughing. But she’s a champ and a fighter! She loves to play fetch and she is crate trained already. She’s doing very well with potty training. Still has an accident here and there, but she is very “treat” motivated, so that helps. And she loves it when we tell

    Hello!

    Hey guys! I know it's been a long time, and I always say I'm gonna check in regularly, but apparently I can't keep that promise. So I'll say, for now, I'll check in when I can. I hope you all had a safe and happy holiday season, and that you have all been able to avoid the Covid beast. David and I had second hand exposure through Harper about a week before Christmas, so that meant testing and quarantine for 2 weeks. Thank God, we all tested negative. But I'm back to not babysitting for my lovey grandson, and baracading myself in the house...because we all know I'm psycho with my anxiety a
  11. Thank you so much, @Aussie Bear❤️We are happy Covid has been a biotch, but we are trying to make the best of it. I hope you are doing well, my friend! Hugs xoxo
  12. @PapaDavid is 14 months post op, and I’m 3.5 years out as of the 17th of this month. Even though I’ve had some regain, I thought some more current pics were a good idea. Here we are, a couple of nights ago, celebrating our upcoming 26th wedding anniversary. This is only the second time we have eaten in a restaurant since the lovely Rona came to visit, and probably the last for a while since we are spiking again. I threw in a couple of others as well The pics are out of order, ugh, lol. The last two are of our anniversary dinner, and the first two are obviously comparison pics ❤️ I’ll ne
  13. Miss you, @TammyP❤️ Hope you’re doing well, my friend!!
  14. Therapy helps a lot. I see an alcohol counselor and my regular therapist. I hope you get some benefits from it ❤️
  15. Yes ma’am, I will be taking the naltrexone for life. I actually think I may need a higher dose, as bariatric patients with malabsorption tend to need. The cravings have come back and it’s tough fighting them off. I’m pretty discouraged, but I do have a ton of support...I just don’t think my brain is letting me accept that support just yet. We are in a tough spot, my friend. My best advice is to talk to anyone in the field that has knowledge about what you’re going through, and accept the help!! I’m hoping to start Wellbutrin soon, and that is supposed to help with the food cravings, as well as
